IMPAC-CT/DT

Safariland introduced of the new PROTECH IMPAC-CT/DT to its line of PROTECH IMPAC special threat plates. These plates provide law enforcement officers the option to upgrade protection against both corrections and duty threats.

The PROTECH IMPAC-CT/DT will replace the IMPAC-CT as the plate has been redesigned to continue providing stab protection against spike and edged bladed instruments in addition to protecting the officer against a variety of duty rounds. The IMPAC-CT/DT is comprised of a high performing fiberglass composite which makes this plate an economical choice for any officer.

The IMPAC-CT/DT has been tested* at an independent NIJ accredited laboratory in accordance with Safariland’s testing protocol against the threats listed below:
